South Africa is about to make history as some of the biggest names in S.A Rock have have come together in the fight against cancer (in association with Vrede Foundation).

Performing their hits that made them famous, plus they’ll take on songs from the international bands that influenced their sound. Never before have so many local legends agreed to partake in a venture of this magnitude for a good cause. 

Each Super Group member has been carefully hand picked from our country’s premier crop of inspiring musicians and legendary bands. The choices are bold, the talent undeniable, the result – unforgettable and incomparable…
